On the forest paper art of Stora Enso

  • Detail

Stora Enso's art of "forest paper"

the long-term goal and mission of this Finnish forest paper enterprise is to expand the use of paper and replace non renewable materials that have been widely used. It is using its own creativity and efforts to correct the name of paper, which once carried human civilization. Due to concerns about climate change, filmmaker John epwan has a product that can help mix glass and nylon Webster persuade his wife and two children to carry out the prohibition of petroleum derivatives, but he does not give up ordinary suburban life. They no longer drive cars, fly planes or buy anything packaged in plastic. His documentary disaster prescription tells all this

the DVD package of this film uses a paper CD case, which is a new product of Stora Enso. Compared with plastic CD-ROM box, it is light, not easy to break, recyclable, and cardboard CD-ROM box can be printed inside and outside

the long-term goal and mission of this Finnish forest paper enterprise is to expand the use of paper and replace non renewable materials that have been widely used. It can even be said with some exaggeration that it is using its own creativity and efforts to correct the name of the paper that once carried human civilization

connotation of environmentally friendly paper

since the 1990s, paperless 4. Office during work has sprung up in the industry. The popularity of electronic tickets, electronic manifests and computers has greatly reduced the use of paper in the air transport industry and offices. The paperless movement of the financial industry followed closely

many industries can reduce the cost of paper through information technology, and even the traditional book publishing industry has been impacted to a certain extent. Cleantech group compares the carbon emissions of Amazon Kindle, the most popular e-book product at present, with those of paper books. By contrast, the carbon emissions of Amazon Kindle in the whole life cycle is only 168 kg. If you are still reading traditional paper books, based on the reading volume of three books a month, the reading volume of four years will produce 1047 kg of carbon emissions

this is obviously not good news for paper enterprises. Although this part of paper is basically concentrated in the printing field. The carbon emission focus of paper is also focused on paper used in the printing field. The British Printing Industry Federation (BPIF) has launched a calculator specifically for the printing and packaging industry to calculate carbon dioxide emissions. At present, BPIF calculator can provide 1. Main specifications: 100kN for carbon dioxide emission data of 28 different paper grades

however, both paperless processes and e-book products are based on changes in consumer habits. The real connotation of environmental protection paper is to reduce unnecessary paper use. In the field of packaging, the rational use of paper may significantly reduce carbon

although packaging will cause a certain amount of material consumption, the prospect of obtaining an ideal return on environmental investment through appropriate packaging protection is attractive. The combination of raw material protection and waste recycling can maximize the regeneration of natural resources. Even through innovation, packaging itself can achieve the extended function of products through ingenious design

New Exploration in the field of packaging

in the choice of different packaging materials, Stora Enso's innovation department sees the great potential of paper. In addition to the CD-ROM box mentioned at the beginning of the article, they also developed the technology of using paper tube cores to make paint cans in the coenzo factory in the Netherlands

paper tube core is one of the products of Stora Enso group. The upper and lower deviation of the shape is similar to that of the web paper, but it is larger than the web paper, with high hardness and strength. The paint can made of coenzo paper core is divided into three parts: the bottom, the body and the cover. The newly developed paint can has many obvious advantages: the paint can does not rust (does not oxidize) when in contact with water-based paint, is environmentally friendly, is easy to pour paint out of the paint can, and the new paint can is lighter than the old metal paint can

this paper paint can is mainly sold in the European and American markets, and the market response is good

in addition, they invented two new cardboard packaging materials for drug packaging:

one is a brand-new child safety drug packaging box. The appearance of this medicine packaging box is no different from that of ordinary cartons, but through the ingenious extraction design on the box, children can't open the medicine box, while adults can easily open it. This medicine box is used to contain drugs related to the treatment of diabetes, which can effectively prevent the risk caused by children's ingestion

another medicine box is equipped with a microchip on the capsule package, which will remind the patient of the time of taking the medicine, and record the specific date and time of taking each tablet out of the package, which can be easily read and automatically transmitted to the server. Compared with traditional aluminum-plastic packaging, the material is not only more environmentally friendly, but also the doctor can easily know the medication status of patients without him

from another point of view, compared with patients who ride to the hospital many times, this kind of packaging can indeed reduce a lot of carbon emissions

get rid of the stereotype of the paper industry

always thought that in people's impression, paper enterprises are big polluters. The pollution of papermaking enterprises is closely related to the use of chemical agents. The application of water is also a must in the production process of the paper industry. For the convenience of water intake, many paper mills are built along water. Especially before the reform and opening up, small paper mills bloomed everywhere. It turned out that the black water in the Huaihe River Basin basically came from the unlicensed discharge of sewage from small paper enterprises

in addition, in China, the traditional technology for thousands of years is mainly aimed at straw pulping. For the consideration of saving costs and forest resources, the paper industry uses wheat straw as the main raw material for papermaking. Wheat straw can be seen everywhere. It is light, easy to use and economical. However, compared with the international mainstream wood pulp papermaking technology, the fiber extraction rate of straw pulp liquid is low, the water consumption is larger, and the waste produced is more. The amount of pollutants discharged from the middle section of straw pulp plant is 6-7 times higher than that of wood pulp plant

the international mainstream paper-making enterprises use wood as the main fiber raw material, but the massive planting of artificial fast-growing forests makes many countries with developed paper industry use wood for paper-making, but their total forest area increases instead of decreasing. The word paper industry has been gradually replaced by the forest paper industry with the connotation of sustainable development. The world-famous Kimberly Clark group and Stora Enso group are all pioneers in the forest paper industry

institutions from third parties will carry out forest certification for these planted regenerated forests. Enterprises can control the source of raw materials for producing each piece of paper, and carry out high-standard sustainable management certification for the production and management of forest land, which can also make the forest land survive healthily and provide an endless source of raw materials. At present, the most mainstream is FSC (Forest Management Committee) certification, which is divided into FM (Forest Management) and COC (chain of production and marketing supervision). The former is the certification of forest management methods, and the latter is to ensure that any wood product can be traced back to the forest land

each piece of wood cut on the certified forest land will be numbered into the computer to ensure that it can be traced in the future

according to the data provided by WWF, only about 8% of the global commercial forest land has passed the forest certification. However, the five largest wood processing enterprises in the world all support forest certification. Having the ability to control sustainable raw materials will become one of the core competitiveness of forest paper enterprises and products in the future

through papermaking with wood fiber resources provided by regenerated forests, energy and water recycling treatment systems are established, and wastewater and waste gas treatment meet the standards, so papermaking enterprises can become environment-friendly enterprises
